In 2010 we were shortlisted by the Bristol Evening Post for family business of the year.
They were impressed with the length of time we had been trading, our ongoing commitment to offering the best standards of customer service and the newly developed lighting showroom. We had seen a big increase in business and had developed a new website on the back of the showroom and in tight economic times they were impressed with how well we were doing.
The other companies nominated in the category were Parsons Bakery and eventual winners Pieminister.
The awards ceremony took place on the 17th June 2010. We all got dressed up and headed to the Marriott Hotel in Bristol town centre for the ceremony.
The evening was very enjoyable and all the staff had an exciting night. Although we didn’t win the award, being runner up was still a big achievement and really helped motivate the staff.
